XQuery and DTD/Schema?
I haven't been following the progress of XQuery closely. I was advised today that a W3C Schema had to be developed instead of a DTD because XQuery only works with Schema. I was skeptical that the XQuery specification would really say this. However, I found what I believe to be conflicting information in the XQuery specification: "XQuery's type system is based on [XML Schema]. Work is in progress to ensure that the type systems of XQuery, the XQuery Core, and XML Schema are completely aligned." I interpret the above statement to mean that XQuery datatypes will be based upon XML Schema. I believe this statement may be the reason for others thinking that an XML Schema and not DTD's or RELAX NG was required in order to use XQuery. Any thoughts on my interpretation of the specification. Thanks!
